TE Carson Provides Big Target

Highland (Kan.) College is home to a tight end that could be seeing some scholarship offers before too long, in the form of Jeremy Carson (6-5, 230).

Carson is a Kansas native, graduating from Seneca High in 2005.  After not getting any real looks out of high school other than a couple of NAIA schools, he ended up at Highland.

It's not turning out to be a bad deal for Carson.  While he has yet to receive an offer, a handful of schools have been showing interest in him.

"I hear from New Mexico quite a bit," said Carson.  "Also Ole Miss, Kansas State, Iowa State and Louisiana Tech.  I haven't been sent anything from Kansas, though."

When Carson arrived at Highland, he began his career as an outside linebacker/safety for the Scotties.

But with his size, he moved to the offensive side of the ball and in his first action there in 2006, caught a 2-point conversion.

Now, he's hoping that his time on offense will produce more offers.

"I definitely think offense is better for me," said Carson.  "No schools have said anything about offering, but hopefully some will." Through the first two games this year he caught 3 passes for 59 yards.

Carson said he would like to take some official visits, though none have been set up.  He will graduate in the spring of 2007 and be ready to go in the fall of next year.

"I'll have two more seasons to play and I have a redshirt year available," said Carson.

Kansas State is a school that Carson wouldn't mind attending, being that its close to home.  But he insists that he is wide open.
